sorry, but I'm leaning toward cockerel. That's a wide band of white on the wings, and the legs look solid yellow, not dark down the front. Those are male indicators

But, it's early and I'm not positive. How old is the bird now? I'd say post again in maybe 3 weeks and we should have a definitive answer by then.

I'm leaning towards roo just because of the solid white line. If the pattern looks more speckled than barred in a couple weeks then you have a pullet. If it starts to look like its white with black lines you have a cockerel.
